This is astounding, I have never ordered from Schreiners, In fact I never
heard of them till this year. From the information I have received this
year , my money would be on them to send correctly labeled iris rhizomes.
Their reputation is hard to beat.
I have been growing Iris 25 years about 10 years ago my interest grew. As I
acquired new ones I realized the need of keeping each cultv. separated and
labeled. Lemon Mist or just #26 worked for a while. This year , with the
advice of some new iris friends I decided to keep only named varieties. I
do not have a lot of room so I have to be very selective.
In the past I have traded and bought from K-mart, Lowe's , Spring Valley
etc. Franks being the best of the lot. Took $.8.00 + telephone calls and
several letters to get Spring V. to replace a $2.50 rhizome.
Last year I went to the Commercial growers farm and made a purchase.
8 cultv. three labeled wrong one labeled right but misunderstanding so
got wrong one. Two have not bloomed. $ 30 Order extras O . Was allowed to
dig 25 seedling rejects no purchase required.
Order from one commercial garden this year. Some did great so far all slow
starters . Three still in Hibernation since middle of July. None rebloomers
so no blooms yet. Labeled right? we will see.

>>I wanted to add "& Labels" to the subject to go with my answer and this
tracked monster keeps wanting me to add it to some file which I DON'Twant
do -- so then it erases what I wantg to send --- and even after I take off
addition, it can't get thru its bonehead that the change is no longerf
it keeps wanting to do something i don't need or want -- and I don't know
to handle this monster === but since I am also stubborn, I'll add my
for the third time and then go about my business - eat breakfast etc<<
